CATSKILL, N.Y. — We draw such sustenance from the relationships we form with the animals — particularly cats and dogs — with whom we share our homes, our lives. On the one hand, it’s a simple compact. In exchange for the safety, comfort, care, security we provide our animal companions, we receive in exchange affection, trust, playfulness, comfort, mischief; virtually unconditional love.
